Ghouls in Media Dog on Deborah Birx
Ghouls in Media Dog on Deborah Birx
You cannot deny that Deborah Birx is a brilliant woman. Not only is she a physician, but her accomplishments in the medical field are astounding. Now, of course, she’s advising President Trump on the coronavirus crisis. But because she says nice things about the President, media ghouls must destroy her credibility.
Here’s an example of what sends the ghouls into a tizzy. On the day that Trump signed the COVID-19 relief bill, Birx complimented him on his handling of the economy.
But according to the media, because she compliments Trump she’s a shill for the Most Stupid President in History. Never mind that intellectually she outpaces every one of them, or that she’s a voice of calm during a stressful situation. Plus, she really knows her stuff. But they hate her because she says nice things about the President, and they just can’t stand it.
Take, for example, leftwing Vox. Writer Aaron Rupar wrote that a recent interview Birx held with the Christian Broadcasting Network raised questions about her “credibility.” Why? Because she said that Trump was “attentive to the scientific literature and the details.”
Truth be told, the fact that she even gave an interview to a network of know-nothing science-denying Christians was enough to send them into histrionics. But according to Vox:
“It’s true Trump is sensitive to certain kinds of data — but those kinds generally include his own poll numbers and the stock market, not indicators of public health.”
Rupar also conveniently added his own tweets to his article. Talk about self-serving:
"[Trump is] so attentive to the scientific literature & the details & the data. I think his ability to analyze & integrate data that comes out of his long history in business has really been a real benefit” — this is shocking, hackish stuff from Dr. Birx. pic.twitter.com/c2phsRYaJs

But the King of the Ghouls was none other than MSNBC’s Brian Williams — yes, that Brian Williams. The same journalist who in 2015 falsely claimed he was aboard a helicopter forced down by fire during the 2003 Iraq invasion. Frankly, I wouldn’t have had to chutzpah to show my face on the air after that. But such are the talking heads on mainstream media, where the egos come bigger than the state of Montana, and the IQs are more like Connecticut.
Anyway, Williams said this about Deborah Birx’s interview:
“That was translated from the original North Korean.”
Mediaite called that an example of Williams’ “dry wit.” The wisecrack was a riff on liberal pundit Molly Ivins’ “all-time classic zinger.” Ivins had said that Pat Buchanan’s speech at the 1992 Republican National Convention “probably sounded better in the original German.”
Har, har, har. Are you laughing yet? Do you find it funny? But that’s how the media operate: they frame Trump’s advisor as a totalitarian monster and then laugh at their own joke.
The brutal truth is that these ghouls would rather see the nation economically collapse and more people die if it means Trump’s defeat in November. They hate him more than they care about America.
Has Trump been perfect in his messaging to the American people? No, nor has he been accurate on all his decisions about the coronavirus crisis, either. He could’ve done things differently at the start. But hindsight, as they say, is always 20/20. Plus, he and his team are navigating in uncharted waters, too.
Scott Adams, the “Dilbert” guy, tweeted this, and it’s worth remembering as we carry on:
This is a good time to maintain some humility about how ridiculous it is to believe any of us, including experts, know exactly the best thing to do and how soon to do it. We’ll be guessing and correcting to the win. Some of us will later seem psychic, but we don’t know who NOW.

Trump is doing what he thinks is best for the country. Dr. Deborah Birx, along with Dr. Anthony Fauci, are advising the President, based upon their examination of scientific data. They’re the experts, but they’re learning, too. And no one in the media knows what goes on when Trump meets with his advisory team, either.
The media ghouls should shut up about things they don’t know about, and let the grownups do their job.
